Knowing that an element-blocking front panel is of the utmost importance in a well-designed vest, Zero RH+'s designers built the new Outside Vest with its proven Airdry fabric. They combined this paneling with an airy, lightweight mesh back panel, creating a purpose-built, torso-wrapping vest that you'll be glad you packed with you on your late-season rides. Starting at the front of the body, Zero RH+ used the Airdry Gold 150 fabric for its construction.

As for the second principle of this fabric, the dry, Airdry Gold 150 also provides a moderate layer of insulation through its three-layer, open knit construction. Essentially, the fabric creates an internal microclimate that's singular to you. So, during intense aerobic exercise, the material allows excess heat to escape from the insulation layer. And not only does this keep your temperature well-regulated, it also decreases moisture accumulation. At the rear of the vest, Zero RH+ has placed its Net fabric. This mesh material is exceptionally lightweight and malleable, yet its primary focus is placed on breathability and moisture management. It also contributes to one of our favorite features of the vest: its precise, jersey-like fit. Not only does the vest provide a softer, more conforming construction than most vests, but its shape and construction is based on a preformed anatomic design. This means that the cut has been coordinated to the predictability of your body's movements. So, when you move, the vest moves with you, not against your skin. To secure the fit, Zero RH+ placed its microfiber gripper at the torso's hem. This gripper provides a gentle hold that prevents shifting while you're changing positions in the saddle. It also eliminates the vest from sagging when its three rear pockets are carrying bulky loads. Additionally, Zero RH+ finished off the Outside vest ...
